Effects of some electrolytes which are frequently used for treatment, on erythrocyte glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase enzyme (G6PD) activity were investigated in in vitro conditions. G6PD was purified by affinity chromatography. Enzyme activity was determined according to the Beutler method by using a spectrophotometer at 340 nm. According to the results of study, 50% inhibitor drug concentration values (I50) were 19.4 mM for calcium gluconate and 160 mM for sodium bicarbonate in in vitro study. There was not observed any inhibitor effect of potassium chloride on glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity. The results of this study revealed that calcium gluconate and sodium bicarbonate have significant inhibition effect but no potassium chloride on the activity of G6PD enzyme in in vitro.
